USDA Forest Service, Forest Health Protection

This photo collection spans over 115 years of federal and state forest entomology, forest pathology, aerial forest insect and disease detection surveys, forest tree genetics, and invasive species management in the Pacific Northwest. While primarily focused on research, activities, and personnel in Oregon and Washington, many photos from other areas are also included. Spanning 1902-2018, the images form an extremely loose visual program history.

A majority of the early photos are from the Bureau of Entomology's Portland Station collection, currently housed at the Forest Service Forestry Sciences Lab in La Grande, Oregon. In 2001-2003, approximately one third of the collection was scanned at 300 dpi by USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Region, Research and Development staff. This collection marries a subset of those 2001 scanned images with metadata from the collection's original documentation and provides supplemental information from a variety of other sources. To learn more about this historical photo collection see:

Wickman, B.E., Torgersen, T.R. and Furniss, M.M. 2002. Photographic images and history of forest insect investigations on the Pacific Slope, 1903-1953. Part 2. Oregon and Washington. American Entomologist, 48(3), p. 178-185.

The rest of the collection is compiled from a variety of sources, including: USDA Bureau of Entomology, Division of Forest Insect Investigations; USDA Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine, Division of Forest Insect Investigations; USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station; USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Region, Research and Development; USDA Forest Service, Region 6, Division of Timber Management, Insect and Disease Control; National Archives and Records Administration, Records of the Forest Service; USDA Forest Service, Region 6, State and Private Forestry, Forest Health Protection; USDA Forest Service, Region 6, Umpqua National Forest, Dorena Genetic Resource Center; Oregon State Department of Forestry; Washington State Department of Natural Resources; and many private collections and other publications.
